I'm shocked and amazed that there's actually a fairly vigorous debate going on in the blog this week about whether a federal employee should be charged with a felony for ripping the head off a duck. Opinions range from "People need cut him some slack" to "He should have like treatment done to him." Check it out if you haven't seen it yet.
Update: By the way, here are some new details on the case, courtesy of the Rocky Mountain News:
- The duck decapitator in question, Scott D. Clark, has been placed on paid administrative leave from his IG auditor job.
- This isn't the first time he's run into trouble with the law in connection with a bird killing. Last year, in Missouri, he was cited for illegally killing a wild turkey without a hunting tag. He pleaded guilty and paid a $168 fine.
